10.6: The return of unlimited PRAM zapping
Authored by: RickoKid on Oct 08, '09 03:31:02PM
Read the article a bit closer and you'll see it says "Some information stored in PRAM includes" (emphasis added), which seems to indicate it is not an exhaustive list. For example the list doesn't say anything about time zone information, but the text below explicitly says time zone information should be checked, indicating that is stored in PRAM too.

Short of you calling ewelch a liar for saying it has worked for him in the past I can't see how you can continue this line of reasoning. I'll add that I've certainly seen zapping the PRAM fix all kinds of weird behaviour from not listing boot volumes to audio corruption.

That said (and back to the original topic), I can't say I've ever come across a limit to how many times PRAM can be zapped, and I'm not sure why I should care. Surely twice is sufficient?
